Atlus is listing the original Shin Megami Tensei V and its DLC ahead of Vengeance’s launch

Atlus has announced that the original version of Shin Megami Tensei V will be delisted from the Nintendo eShop on June 13th. That’s a day before the launch of its expanded definitive edition, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance.

On June 13, the Digital Standard and Digital Deluxe editions of Shin Megami Tensei V and all of its DLC will be removed from the eShop. However, owners of the physical and digital versions will be able to play and redownload this content even after it has been delisted. SMT V was first launched in November 2021 and Atlus announced it as the best-selling game in the series in January 2022.

Atlus didn’t provide a reason for the move, but given time, it’s likely to avoid confusion with the upcoming SMTV: Vengeance, which is the same game but features quality-of-life improvements and an additional storyline that introduces new locations and demons. (Think of it as SMT V’s Persona 5 Royale). Revenge will be multi-platform, but the original game was a Switch exclusive and will run the same price as the original Standard Edition at $59.99.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance launches on June 14. You can read our extended preview of the game here and you can also check out our review of the original SMT V.
